One of the cheapest, easiest ways to get children moving is by using familiar songs such as “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes,” or “Itsy Bitsy Spider.” For an added twist try varying the speed/pitch of the song.
Can you sing low and slow or high and fast? How does that change the way the kids move their bodies?
Have you ever tried having the kids dance to “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Grieg?
